IAmA Game Developer about to Launch on Steam for the First time and am quietly freaking out inside
I have been making a landscape painting app called FlowScape that lets you paint 3d dioramas without needing to know any technical knowledge like a lot of professional apps. This has been my passion project to make something creative and non violent.
I've had 5 months of early access on itch.io where ive garnered an amazing community of around 6k users offering suggestions and finding bugs. The app has has grown a lot in that time and i have a 4.8 out of 5 star rating, so i must be doing something right.
But in 2.5 weeks i'm launching on Steam and i have no idea what will happen. It could go really well or it could fizzle with so many titles being released every day. It truly keeps me awake at night.
I'm here to answer any questions you may have about game development. If you want to learn it, i can offer advice. If you like the game, you can wishlist it. Maybe you can give me a virtual hug, i really need one :)
